HOW TO BE PARISIAN WHEREVER YOU ARE

Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret & Sophie Mas

How To Be Parisian is the ultimate girls guide to imitating the most endearing qualities of the elusive Parissiene woman. From the ideal man to 24 hour looks and plastic surgery – this is the true guide to Paris. This is absolutely hand luggage, it’s easy reading but if you don’t finish it on the plane we recommend taking it to Saint Germain-des-Prés, hiding it in a newspaper and finishing it among the most quintessential Parisienne’s as you sip your coffee and bask in a pastry. It’s light, fun, funny and gives some incredible life advice … wherever you are.

THE GIRL WITH THE LOWER BACK TATTOO

Amy Schumer

We truly believed that we couldn’t love Schumer any more than we did while watching her pretend to shove popcorn in her face on the Ellen show, but this book has topped anything we have seen from her. Honest, raw and devastatingly hilarious, this book shares the ugly truth of being human, even if you’re a celebrity. It’s everything we expected from Schumer in terms of hilarity but it’s the vulnerable details shared about her life, that make her so surprisingly relatable. Heads up, there’s no self-love life-advice in this one … but it will help you to feel totally normal. Perfect for a long haul flight.
